The park provides a range of habitat, including fields, marshy ponds, and scrub woodland. There’s also a marked nature trail. But the park’s true attraction —in fact, its national fame — comes from its fall raptor migration. Watchers set up a lookout post on the low bluff overlooking the Nueces and count passing vultures, Osprey, kites, eagles, harriers, hawks, and falcons from mid-August through mid-November. In 1998 nearly a million birds were seen, and in 2002 well over a half-million. The great majority of them (more than 90 percent) are Broad-winged Hawks, the small Buteo that nests in woodlands over much of eastern North America.
